​Benfica boss Vitoria tips struggling Lindelof to flourish at Man Utd

Benfica manager Rui Vitoria believes that Victor Lindelof will make a success of his time at Manchester United despite having had a mixed start to life at the club.

Lindelof made the move from the Portuguese giants to United during the summer for £30.7 million and is currently being eased back into the side.

Speaking ahead of his sides Champions League clash against United on Wednesday, Vitoria highlighted that he believes that Lindelof will be a success in England, saying: "He is a very high-quality player, he has been playing with Jose Mourinho.

"Of course when you move from the Portuguese championship to an English championship, so there is a phase, a stage of adaptation.

"But I do foresee that in the future Lindelof will be a player of Jose Mourinho's team. He has a lot of value, he is very cold, very competitive and has a great deal of quality."
